A golfer who hit a bunker on a course hero in the face with a tee shot at a local tournament has earned himself a new nickname: “Pillow.”
The incident happened at The Brookview Golf Course in the Presidio of San Francisco in January.
It was captured on video by a woman who was nearby.
Her boyfriend, a friend of the woman’s, then came to her aid and pulled her out of the bunker.
She was bleeding profusely, according to the woman, who did not want to be identified.
The man was unharmed.
The Brookview course was not affected by the incident, according the course’s website.
The Courses Heroes program has offered support services to players injured in golf accidents.
